Mosquito nets

UNICEF is one of the largest buyers of mosquito nets in the world, delivering 29 million long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to 38 countries in 2013.

LLINs have been developed in response to the low re-treatment rates of conventional insecticide-treated nets, especially in Africa. A long-lasting net is a ready-to-use, pre-treated mosquito net, which requires no further treatment during its expected life span. This is the preferred choice of mosquito nets for UNICEF-supported programmes. The scale up of production includes technology transfers, notably from Japan to Africa.

UNICEF Supply Division hosts an annual LLINs Suppliers’ Meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark.
